skateboard, plaza, surface texture, scanning methods, Everson Museum, Syracuse
"This project uses the methods of scanning implicated by the skateboarder in a detournement of the modernist plaza. In doing so, it seeks to prove that universality is not universal. Ultimately, by reframing Mies van der Rohe's Neue Nationalgalarie in Berlin as field of spatial data through methods of scanning related to skateboarding, new ways of understanding Mies' plaza will point to a spatial reorganization of the museum and plaza."
